Simple Lightbox
[resolved] Text link to open group of images in lightbox? (2 posts)

    I'm wondering how I can make a single text link open up a lightbox with a grouping of 3-4 selected images from my Media Library? I don't want thumbnails to appear.

    I'm also wondering if the caption or description can include a link to a URL, and if so, what's the best way to code this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Launching galleries is not officially supported at this time.

    However, what some users have done is:

    1. Create an empty link for each image in the slideshow (i.e. a link with no text)
    2. Create a visible link (i.e. a link with text) to the first image in the slideshow
    3. Turn on grouping in SLB's settings

    Now when a visitor clicks on the visible link, the other images linked to via the invisible links will also be displayed in the same slideshow.

    Granted, this is a bit hacky and requires a bit of HTML knowledge, so this is just to show you what some other users have done to achieve this effect.

    A more official solution is indeed in the works.
